Patrick Grady is my MP, and I’ve voted for him every time he has stood in the constituency, and even as far back as the student union elections at Strathclyde. One of the reasons is that, as well as being a good MP, I have always believed him to be one of the good guys, and he has given me that impression anytime our paths have crossed.
I would struggle to vote for him now. I appreciate everyone makes mistakes, but politicians cannot try to claim the moral high ground while simultaneously attempting to brush their own issues under the carpet. This especially applies in the current climate, where it becomes impossible to call out the Tories for their scandals if you are up to your neck in the same shit.
